ABSTRACT 

The study sought to examine NGOs and community development: a case study of Action Aid, Masindi District. The study objectives were; to establish the relationship between development of infrastructure facilities and community development in Masindi District, to examine the relationship between agriculture development and community development in Masindi District and to assess the relationship between promotion of education and community development in Masindi District. This study used cross-sectional research design to assess the respondents’ views towards NGOs and Community development in Masindi District particularly Action Aid Uganda. The total population of Masindi District is 9,235 inhabitants (UBOS, 2018). Masindi District has 7 sub counties, 22 parishes and 225 villages. However, the researcher targeted a population of 58 inhabitants. A sample size of 50 respondents was determined through purposive and random sampling methods. The researcher used varieties of sampling which included: Purposive and random sampling. Data was collected from primary and secondary sources using questionnaires and interviews. After collecting data, the researcher organized well-answered questionnaire, data was edited and sorted for the next stage. The data was presented in tabular form, pie charts and bar graphs with frequencies and percentages. The study findings revealed that the sample constituted of 50 respondents of which 66% were males and the 34% remaining were females. This implies that males are the majority. This implies that the most respondents were men due to the societal beliefs that the males are hardworking and hence capable of running NGOs more effectively than their female counterparts and hence contributing towards community development in the area. The study concludes that community-based organizations and cooperatives can acquire, subdivide and develop land, construct housing, provide infrastructure and operate and maintain infrastructure such as wells or public toilets and solid waste collection services. The study recommends that there is need to establish a policy framework that maximizes the incomes of the working rural dwellers through policies to promote rural self-employment and reliability. The study recommends that there is need to provide additional and maintenance of existing infrastructural facilities as earlier listed above, encourage the principle of continuity whereby successive governments adopt the viable rural development programmes initiated by their predecessors.
